The truth continues to trickle out: Britain connects Diego Garcia with extraordinary rendition flights

i posted back in mid-october on the possibility that diego garcia is a cia black site... it looks like, ever-so-slowly, the truth is coming out...
Two U.S. planes carrying terrorism suspects refueled at a U.S. base on British-ruled Diego Garcia in 2002, Britain said on Thursday, contradicting earlier assurances.

"Contrary to earlier explicit assurances that Diego Garcia had not been used for rendition flights, recent U.S. investigations have now revealed two occasions, both in 2002, when this had in fact occurred," British Foreign Secretary David Miliband told parliament. Diego Garcia is an Indian Ocean island.

given the island's extreme isolation from just about anywhere, what do you think the likelihood is that they were "JUST" refueling stops for extraordinary rendition flights...?

here are some google earth shots of diego garcia...

The above shows the entire Diego Garcia
atoll surrounding the lagoon. Although
you can't see them very well in this shot,
there are 7 ships in the lagoon and 2
in port.

The above is a closer-in shot of the
airbase. The port is in the middle left
and the housing area is on the extreme
upper left.
